  • We stopped by Fort Verde State Historic Park during a recent visit to Camp Verde thinking we would spend a hour or so but found ourselves spending well over two hours listening to the ranger and walki...  read more »
  • There is nothing to see apart from the museum. All that is left are 4 houses in Officers Row where you can't get into any of the rooms as all they are walled off behind glass. Save your time and money...  read more »
  • I'm a huge fan of the writer , Elmore Leonard, particularly of his Western novels. Many of his stories take place in historic locales in what was then Arizona Territory. I believe Camp Verde or Ft Ver...  read more »
  • The museum has some interesting displays with a short 20 minute movie to watch on the fort. There are 3 buildings you can walk through with period displays. The married officers quarters and the single officers quarters and the camp physician's house. All homes are self guided. The park personal were all very friendly and quite informative. They were all more than willing to take time to answer questions and explain the displays. There is a small book store on premise. Worth the stop!
  • I had high expectations for this place...and it really disappointed me. It's definitely not worth the $7. I love historical places, but this place was so EMPTY. I'm sure it's good at one of their annual events, but I went on a regular day. There were NO other visitors there. I took my time in the museum, but it's mostly stuff to read, rather than artifacts to look at. There's three or so historical forts to walk through, but it really doesn't take long, and they're all similar to each other. I was looking forward to getting to dress to clothes from the time period, because I had read it in a bunch of Yelp reviews, but there were no signs about it or anything. Eventually, I asked an employee about it, and she was able to show me where the clothes were and allow me to put them on. So we got our pictures...but it was a little awkward that I had to ask for it.
  • Love the educational events they put on here, like History of the Buffalo Soldiers.
  • Great
  • My g-great-grandparents with their children arrived in Camp Verde on a wagon train Aug. 23, 1875, so I was excited to see the place where their daughter was married and my grandfather was born in 1877. It took them 3 months and 20 days after leaving Missouri to reach Camp Verde. I purchased a book at the fort that actually had their name in it! The guide at the camp was very helpful. I also visited Montezuma's Castle, which is nearby.
